  • Cornell Campbell & U Roy - Babylon You Wrong / Babylon You Wrong Dub
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
For the very first time in their enduring recording career, Reggae icons Cornell Campbell and deejay godfather 'daddy' U Roy are brought together in the studio by the crew of Zion High Productions to record a vocal collaboration. The final result, the single "Babylon You Wrong", is strongly reminiscent of the foundation Reggae style emphasizing serious messages of dread and righteousness over bright, appealing riddims. Although it's the first time they have done a combination tune, U Roy's unique deejaying talents and Cornell Campbell's trademark falsetto voice compliment each other perfectly. Riddimwise airy horn solos spar with smart percussion and driving bass lines. A truly great, well produced tune, with also the dubby version on the flipside worth hearing.
